AYSO Youth Soccer Area 1G Inland Empire

I am sad to share the news of the passing of Sandie Oerly.  Sandie has been an outstanding volunteer for AYSO at the Region, Area and National level for 50 years.  Sandie passed away peacefully at her home on Monday, February 12, surrounded by her family.

Those of you who played 6U or 8U soccer in Rancho Cucamonga at Alta Loma Jr High will remember Sandie as the primary AYSO representative, on the field from before you arrived for the first game until after you left for the last game.  You may also be aware that Sandie was the Area G Director for an inconceivable 34 years.  She has also been a member of the AYSO National Management Council – generating many of the position handbooks and training materials used today.

On top of her AYSO contributions, Sandie was also a School Board member in the Alta Loma School District.  Her  remarkable tenure of over 40 years with the School District has left an indelible mark on our community. Her visionary leadership, commitment to excellence, and compassionate approach to education have significantly contributed to the District's reputation as a leading educational institution.

There will be a memorial service Saturday, March 16 at 3:00.  Location will be announced.  Sandie’s family is requesting that everyone wear AYSO board shirts, or any type of soccer clothing, as a reminder of how she met each and every one of us.

We are also pleased to announce a recent decision by the Alta Loma School District Board of Trustees that beautifully commemorates Sandie Oerly's profound legacy. The east field at Alta Loma Junior High School, a central hub for AYSO Region 65 activities and a place close to Sandie's heart, will be officially named Sandie Oerly Field. This honor is a testament to Sandie's significant contributions and her enduring positive influence on our youth and community. Sandie's passion for and dedication to youth sports, particularly soccer, made this field a fitting symbol of her remarkable impact. We will soon share details about a ceremony to unveil the field's new name this spring. It promises to be a poignant celebration of Sandie's life and legacy, and we invite everyone to join us in this special commemoration.
